We’re proudly flying the flag for contemporary sewists across the globe, whatever their level, which is why we’re so pleased to be able to share with your our brand new collection of stylish sew-at-home patterns.

Whether you’re a sewing newbie, or want to add more patterns to your collection, we think you’ll find our carefully curated Cotton + Chalk designs impossible to resist.

Our patterns have been tried and tested by our in-house sewists, so you can be sure of a flawless finish. Each Cotton + Chalk pattern comes in sizes 6 – 20 (US 4-18/EUR 34-48) and includes all the instructions to take you through the sewing process step-by-step.

But it doesn’t stop here. We’ll be adding a whole host of designs to our pattern shop in the coming months, inspired by our favourite people and places.

We’re as passionate about patterns and fabrics as you are and we can’t wait to see your Cotton + Chalk garments take shape.

For our debut pattern, The Rosie Dress, we’ve gone back to our sewing roots (inspired by our grandmother’s era) with an elegant and quintessentially British design that’s guaranteed to stand the test of time.

The Rosie Dress is a beautiful 1940s-inspired tea dress with an elegant V-neck, flattering under bust waist inset and a pretty gathered skirt. We can just imagine this gorgeous skirt being swirled around at an afternoon tea dance with a jive band on stage. So perfect!
